Tested: Knog Party Combo Lock.

Posted by: kris

A bit back the friends at Knog sent through their lightweight Party Combo for a little street Testing. After a using around town for quick beer runs and a bit of extra security I’d say it deserves a bit of a rest. Below are a few things I liked and fewer that I didn’t as well as a handful of photos to peep. Having waited a bit on this review I wanted to have some fun with the flicks so I took to downtown after work yesterday to catch some of the buzz…

 

 

 

LOOK:

 

This cable lock doesn’t suck. That should be enough of a review right there because more often than not they do. Too long a cable or too crappy a lock makes you nervous to let them be seen with your bike let alone on it. The Party Combo from Knog tightens it up into a nice, simple looking design that you won’t mind carrying around. Personally I would have gone with black or one of the other 7 colors available for however “bright” your taste might be.

Testing Testing: Eighthinch Drop and Riser Bars.

Posted by: kris

The old friends at Eighthinch sent out a couple of their newest bars to put through the ringer. Having just been released the new drop bar and small risers are a huge improvement over their past models. Since the my tarck build is made up of almost all Eighthinch goods the riser will be right at home while the drops will end up on a track build. Here’s a couple snaps from a grimy downtown alley…check back for more after these get broken in!

Wheelie Wednesday!

Posted by: kris

A little something for today’s hump day celebration to remind you that the weekend fun is coming in hot. Been having  some rear wheel fun freshening up on a bit of classic tarck goodness. Forgot how fun this stuff is so naturally I got a bit excited and snagged a few clips. Just some good times this week bouncing around town…

WHAT’S COOKIN’: Eddie’s Superb Sprint.

Posted by: kris

Had some time to kill today around lunch and remember that Eddie had something else awesome I had wanted to shoot. After a quick text I was able to link up with him before he headed into work…ironically cookin’ it up at a restaurant. His Superb Sprint is something to behold from the MACK hubs to the matching Wound Up post and fork. Click through for a bunch more…then go get your dinner time on.

Testing Testing: Revolights City v2.0

Posted by: kris

I first linked up with the dudes at Revolights a couple years back after Lucas got his hands on some early prototypes. After a hugely successful Kickstarter and some design updates the “out of the box” light company had the City v2.0. Rather than fitting the LED hoops to your current wheels these come pre-mounted and about ready to roll right out of the box to be the easiest way to get your Tron bike on. I like keeping things simple so when they offered a set for reviewing I was definitely in and tossing them on the bike party ride. More after some play time…or if you can’t wait swoop here!

 

PS: After a couple cold brews last night Lucas and I shot this quick bit for just for fun. Thinking some video reviews might be on order….

Smither’s Razesa.

Posted by: kris

Mike has been hanging around Pedal Hard for a few years now and is always looking for something to spend money on. After going through more bikes in the past few months than most people do ever he’s finally got something he likes. This vintage Razesa track frame is about as rare as they come and he definitely hooked this one up proper. From the polished H&Son hoops to that aesome 1″ Nitto stem this is one clean build that’s definitely worth a look. After a quick 10 miles yesterday we stopped downtown to snap a few quick photos…more after the click!
